There is a growing battle over how much of that information the government should save and analyze.

    Radio Specials Intelligence Squared U.S. Are Liberals Stifling Intellectual Diversity on Campus? -- What is college for? For many, it's a time for personal and intellectual growth, to meet new people and to explore ideas and philosophies that challenge their beliefs. Or is it? Recent cancellations of conservative speakers, rescinded honorary degrees and scrutiny of certain campus groups have heightened perceptions that there is pervasive liberal intolerance on campuses. Are liberals shutting down speech and debate on campus? Or is this theory a myth, based on the preponderance of liberals at universities rather than intentionally discriminatory actions? The Oxford-style debate program takes up the issue.

    Forum FDA Approves Ecstasy-Assisted Psychotherapy in Marin County The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given a Marin therapist the green light to study whether the illegal drug ecstasy, or MDMA, is effective in treating severe anxiety and depression when taken in conjunction with psychotherapy.

    Radio Specials On Being NPR's Michel Martin on American Consciousness -- If journalism is a primary way we tell the story of ourselves, Michel Martin is a person helping us tell that story more completely. Her daily NPR program "Tell Me More" was often labeled as "diversity" or "minority" programming. But in fact, she and her journalism are about a more generous and realistic sweep of who we are now -- and how we're creating our life together anew. At the Chautauqua Institution, the show mines her wisdom on the emerging fabric of human identity.
